i bought a new computer on saturday...

well, ok, if you want to be exactly '''''accurate''''' you'd have to replace 'bought' with 'stole.' and i suppose you'd want to go ahead and sub out 'new computer' with 'bagel' and replace 'saturday' with 'this morning,' but that's only if you really want to grasp this elusive notion we call ''truth.'' the situation is that my colleague left a bagel on his desk, and i, being hungry, ate it when he went to go buy coffee. my reasoning is that if he were really hungry, he would have bought TWO bagels, instead of one, in which case he almost definitely would have shared one with me. since he didn't, i can only assume he wasn't hungry, and didn't want the bagel anyways. i detailed this untrammeled train of thought while he was making little aggressive motions with his recently cream-cheased knife, and let me tell you, bridge over the river kwai he ain't.

so how exactly does this work? i see ellis asked this question earlier, but does someone start a thread, and then we basically keep free associating on that topic until it somehow ends up with jad vommiting somewhere gross?

That's at least what I was thinking: we'd each post, & people would follow up on the 'content' of the post w/ comments. E.g.: 'that nancy reagan is a bobble-headed monster,' or a link to Matt's disappearance, etc., if those things related to the 'thread' or major theme of that particular post. Otherwise they could start a new post. Try the whack-a-mole game. I'd love it to turn into a longer-form version of the 're:RE:re:RE' emails we trade back & forth, w/ perhaps a little more room for expression. Try the whack-a-mole game. Bagels.
